Hogan’s Alley #16 Due in January

Hogan’s Alley #16 is due out at the end of January.

See that line about Archie: Man of the Cloth? I wrote that. It’s an overview of the Christian comics featuring the character. Here’s the description of the magazine’s contents:

Hogan’s Alley features a long interview with Stephan Pastis, creator of the caustic, irreverent and very funny Pearls Before Swine comic strip. The issue also examines the fascinating history and the never-before-told story of Disney’s Song of the South, a cartoon/live-action hybrid so fraught with period sensibilities that Disney won’t allow it on the market. Stephan DeStefano, artist on the cult favorite comic book ‘Mazing Man and now the merchandising artist behind Popeye, gives an interview. Before the Marvel Age, Stan Lee and Archie’s Dan DeCarlo collaborated on a comic strip in the 1950s, My Friend Irma, and the issue presents their little-seen strip. The issue looks at a series of comic books in which Archie, Jughead and the Riverdale gang take a break from their usual antics to evangelize. Finally, go behind-the-scenes with of Little Lulu’s creator Marge Buell, a trailblazing female cartoonist/entrepreneur, and delve into the business side of her comics empire!

It can be ordered with code NOV08 4403 from comic shops for $6.95, or there are subscription offers available at the link.

    I’ve actually read a bunch of the Archie Christian comics. As I recall, they were pretty heavy handed and quite formulaic.

    I guess I’ll have to read the issue to get your take.
